Bob



Bob is a preacher.  Originally from England, he has lived in the States for many years.  He likes places on the water, like his native Blackpool, so he is very happy to be in Naples these days.

When I met Bob, he was poring over a hundred year old book and taking copious notes.  He thinks people today spend too much time on their cell phones and don't put in the hard work of reading and thinking about what they read.

Bob has been a chaplain in a nursing home but that didn't suit him.  He has also sung in an almost completely black gospel choir.  Bob would like to find a church with an appropriately liberal congregation.  He begins teaching in a small nearby church next month and hopes that this will work into something more.

He evokes Hemingway.

The weather there looks a lot warmer than Blackpool at this time of year. He sounds like an interesting man.
